I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour de Golden Horseshoe to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
In July 2013, my neice Hailey was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, thankfully she is currently in remission. However it was a long process for her, my brother and sister in law. Hailey endured so much throughout her chemo treatments and she truly is a hero. Hailey beat cancer, is able to attend school, go to sleep overs and be a kid again! However the years of chemotherapy has left Hailey with limited muscle strength in her legs and other related signs that chemo fought hard the cancer inside her.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; providing reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offering vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
This terrible disease has impacted all of us. We raise money in their honour and in the hope of prevention and a cure. The money raised from this ride goes directly to pediatric cancer research for the long term, to assist in not only beating cancer but to not have to deal with the lasting effects of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative cost.
Thanks for your support!
